I have a Yamaha V992 receiver which is approximately 10 years old.
The receiver volume stopped today while playing the volume for a DVD movie. THe volume light on the receiver volume control is blinking. I haven't been able to get it reset.
I haven't found any type of reset so I'm assuming it may have been overlaoded or shorted a circuit of some type.
Do you have any suggestions? I live in N. Atlanta, Ga. so I'm planning to find a technician to possibly debug it.
Any advice or suggestions are appreciated.

Re: Volume not playing
I would guess that the blinking vol lite is indicating "protect" mode. This is a case where the amp section is shutdown to prevent further damage as a problem has been found. This is usually because the amp transistors have failed. Expect $25-$35 in parts plus the local labor rate.

Using the variable out connections on the Bose, connect your L&R channels to the desired input, I recommend the auxillary, on your Yamaha and select that input. Turn the volume all the way down on your Yamaha. Turn the volume on your Bose all the way up; then readjust the volume as desired on your Yamaha.
Optional connection; the headphone jack. Connect a 3.5mm mini to stereo plug cable from the Bose to Yamaha in the manner described as above and use the volume control approximately the same way.
The use of 901's in any digital AV receiver setup for anything EXCEPT STEREO listening through the 901's alone requires you to have a separate amplifier for them and to avoid having to use a Tape Monitor.
That is because if you activate any Tape Monitor circuit at all, you will kill any digital sources. That is a function of AV receivers in general, nothing to do with 901's. Assuming you want the 901's as part of your multichannel sound, you need to get a dedciated power amp just for the 901's and you don't need to use a Tape Monitor loop.
You can draw the Front Left and Right signals out of the Main Out connectors, go into the Active EQ's Amplifier IN Connections; then Out of the EQ's Amplifier OUT Connection to a separate amp and attach the 901's to that amp. This way you won't introduce proprietary and potentially damaging Active Equalization back into anything in the AV Receiver with its conventional speakers.
Run through the speaker level settings with the new amp at a suitable volume setting (if it has a volume knob; many don't). Then leavethe amp volume control alone.
The AV Receiver can still drive the Center, Surrounds and the Sub(s) as it is designed and control the volume on everything.
No, it's a rubber membrane under the button and rubber "bubble pad" check ebay for replacement, not too expensive. If you need a "system control" remote, look at the Harmony Logitech series. The 620 is around 100 and the 610 is around 70. Great remotes and "Easy" to program. Hope this helps
Well I have an Onyyo TS SV515 Pro II receiver that is quite a few years old. I have lived in several houses and have moved it with me. For as long as I can remember it has been going into 'protect mode' when I turned it over 6 on the volume knob. I have a subwoofer and 4 infinite speakers and a yamaha center channel speaker. I got on the internet the today to see if I could figure out why it did this. One person suggested cutting my speaker wires and resplicing it making sure no hanging wires where there. I had been using the same speaker wire since I puchased it (10 yrs ago). I feel pretty stupid, cause I just did the wires to my front 2 Infinite speakers and WaLa...It works flawlessly. I can now turn up my receiver...after 10 years of dealing with no 'full' volume. *****Check those speaker connection, they are the key*****
There is a problem with the receiver that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output amp section. This is detected and the protection circuit shuts down the receiver. Yamaha uses coupling capacitors between sections to prevent this. If one of these is defective, it would explain your symptom. This should be a relatively simple repair for a repair shop. Expect $10-$25 for parts plus the local labor rate.
Plug in some headphones as they are usually always active and see if you get any sound and volume control of them.
if not the switches may be stuck .
or the output fuses blown.
it gets sticky to work inside one of these without electronics experience and you can do more damage.
The fuses are about all you are allowed to fix.
There is some leakage of DC voltage getting to the output section. DC voltage will cause the protection circuit to kick in and shut down the amp. This should be a relatively simple repair and cost about $15-$30 in parts plus the local labor rate.
